Rick Santorum Helps To Ban Gay Groups From CPAC

Joe Sudbay:

Organizations are not welcome to come to CPAC next year if they support DADT repeal (which rules out 80% of all Americans, including that CPAC hero Dick Cheney, among others) and if they support marriage equality (which rules out that CPAC hero Dick Cheney, among others). He did say that "gays" are welcome so long as they don't advocate gays in the military or marriage. Guess GOProud isn't quite the darlings of the conservative movement that they think they are. Let's see how hard GOProud will grovel to get re-invited.

You see, you're welcome to CPAC if you're gay, but don't believe any anything that can make you part of our society so shut up, vote for Republicans and hide in the closet.

Daily Kos:

It looks like Rick Santorum won his argument about the conservative stool: CPAC, the American Conservative Union's annual conference, will no longer allow groups that support legal equality for gay Americans to participate their annual gathering, says group leader Al Cardenas:

“If you are a group, and this has got nothing to do with your orientation,” said Cardenas, “of straight couples, and you advocate gay marriage, that’s not within the scope of what we believe the three legs of the stool of the movement are.”

Or, put another way, CPAC doesn't care whether a group's membership is straight or not...the only thing that matters is that they be anti-gay.

There was a time when Rick 'man on dog' Santorum was holding what he said were classified documents that was proof positive WMD's did exit in Iraq which justified the war to Hannity and Colmes. It was quickly debunked, but CPAC loves him anyway.

Santorum: I'll show you the classified documents right here...

Combs: It's Alan Colmes. Senator, the Iraq Survey Group, uhh, let me go to the Duelfer Report-says Iraq did not have the weapons our intelligence believed were there. And Jim Angle who reported this for Fox News-quotes a defense official who says these were pre-1991 weapons that could not have been fired as designed because they already been degraded.

And the official went on to say that they are-these are not the WMD's this country and the rest of the world believed Iraq had-and not the WMD's for which this country went to war. So the chest beating that the Republicans are doing tonight thinking this is a justification is not confirmed by the defense department. Santorum: Well, ahh, I'd like to know who that is. The fact of the matter is I'll wait and see what the actual Defense Department formally says or more importantly what the administration formally says. This report.
